The Blurb

This book offers space enthusiasts an unparalleled visual experience of our solar system.

Informative summaries of every destination are based on knowledge gleaned from more than 50 years of space exploration.

My Verdict

Fly Me to the Moon –

The moon is close to home and is about a quarter the diameter of Earth. It’s surface area is less than the size of Asia. so how about a weekend on the moon? The moon has extreme temperatures so you have to make sure you are wearing the right kind of space suit. It also has low gravity so you’ll weigh only 16 per cent of what you weigh back home. It also has a rough terrain and spends a lot of the day in darkness. Places to visit include the first Apollo landing site, Luna Park and the lava tubes of Aristarchus Plateau.

A Must for Science Fiction fans and anyone who wants to learn more about our universe.

This large hardback book is jam packed with everything you need to know about our universe with a fun twist. It’s a futuristic journey through the cosmos. In some parts you have to suspend belief and imagine you are a hundred years in the future, so there is a lot of fantasy to enjoy. But, there are also many facts to be absorbed, for instance; what causes Jupiter’s auroras and why Titan provides a unique window into understanding the early history of our own world.

As well as all the facts, figures and fun the book has some fabulous artwork and fascinating photos. Including eight pull out posters

I think this book will appeal to all kinds of space fanatics and I know it will be well read by everyone in our house.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
